I will be showing two new collector’s cabinets with Sarah Myerscough Gallery at Collect 2015, Saatchi Gallery, London. The two pieces are an unmatched pair, similar to each other in form yet also quite different.
Both again draw visual and structural inspiration from the geometry of industrial architecture from the stretch of the Thames between Greenwich and the flood barrier near Woolwich. Sharing principal materials of quarter-sawn European oak for the carcasses and maple for the leg frames and drawers, one piece is accented with brown oak for its drawer fronts and tambour door, the other with bog oak for it’s doors and drawer fronts. Construction across both pieces employs hand-cut dovetails to the carcasses and drawers, and mortice and tenon joints in the leg frames and carcasses. These pieces continue my interest with furniture and the objects they might contain.
